In 1962, Tennessee-born designer Albert Hadley of Parish-Hadley Associates used Schumacher’s Hollyhock chintz throughout the living room of socialite Nancy “Princess” Pyne’s New Jersey estate. Schumacher recently reintroduced the pattern with the help of Mrs. Pyne’s own fabric. Now it’s available in Indigo and Tobacco in addition to the original Charcoal colorway.
Decorating tip: An arrangement of blue-and-white patterns always looks timeless. Add this classic chintz into your blue-and-white mix as a bolster or throw pillow.
